Washing them in the washing machine and air drying helps renew them. Worked for me.

To add to the washing machine thing, also place them in a pillow case to protect your washer from the buckles, this will also keep it from getting "fuzzy". Then when it is still wet, wiggle the crap out of the halter itself, bunch it up, straighten it out, take each strap and cheek piece and ect. and hold the with both hands and wiggle them to loosen the threads.
